Conserve water

We all know the world’s water is under stress from pollution and wasteful practices by people and corporations. Here are a few things you can do around your own home to conserve water that will cost you little to no money: ⠀

-re-use your pasta or vegetable cooking liquid: you can use this to water your plants as it will give your plants extra nutrients (just let it cool first).⠀

-eat less meat: rearing animals for meat and dairy is very water-intensive. If you cut down on the amount of meat products you buy, you can reduce your water footprint drastically.⠀

-harvest rain water. You can use a rain barrel or even keep a few big bowls around your yard and use the water they collect to water your garden.

-turn the tap off while brushing your teeth or washing your hands.

-only run the dishwasher or laundry machine when you have full loads.

-scrape, don’t rinse, dishes before putting them in the dishwasher.

-put a layer of mulch around trees and plants in your yard (this slows evaporation of moisture).

-steam your veggies instead of boiling them.

-buy less and buy local: the more goods and food you buy, the more water is used to produce and ship those items.
